Amplified mitochondrial DNA as a diagnostic marker for species of conifer-feeding Choristoneura (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)Download
Abstract: We describe a method for identifying conifer-feeding species and lineages of Choristoneura Lederer in Canada and Alaska. The method relies on amplification of mitochondrial (mt) DNA by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR); amplified DNA is then digested with restriction enzymes to give...
We describe the characterisation of the two main coat colour determining loci (MC1R and KIT) for pigs and demonstrate how this information can be utilized for breed identification. These approaches can be useful components of quality assurance and traceability schemes which are increasingly...
